RICHMOND, Va. -- A University of Virginia football player was bullied and harassed by teammates because of his learning disability and seriously injured after being forced to fight another athlete in order to prove his manliness, according to a federal lawsuit filed against the school this month.Aidan Howard, who has since left the school, said in the complaint filed in a Pennsylvania federal court that his teammates called him slow and retarded in front of coaches when he couldnt quickly comprehend plays. Howard also suffered a broken eye socket when he was forced to fight another first-year player in August as part of his initiation onto the team, according to the complaint.A university spokesman said the school is investigating, but couldnt comment further on the lawsuit.The university is aware of Mr. Howards allegations and has made all of the required external notifications in accordance with state law, Anthony de Bruyn said in an email. The university has been actively investigating these reports consistent with its obligations under the law and University policy, he said.The complaint says the hazing was done primarily by two wide receivers: Doni Dowling and David Eldridge. In addition to making fun of Howard for his learning disability, it says the two would make him eat his lunch and dinner alone because he was not as tough and manly as others within the football program.De Bruyn did not immediately respond to an email seeking information about whether the players have obtained attorneys.The lawsuit states Dowling and Eldridge orchestrated a locker room fight between Howard and another player after a team practice that was witnessed by more than 100 people, including Famika Anae, a graduate assistant for the team. The lawsuit also says Dowling and Eldridge forced Howard and the other student to `enter the ring to flashing lights, loud music and announcements to simulate a prize fight.The lawsuit names Teresa Sullivan, president of the university; Craig Littlepage, director of athletics and Marques Hagans, wide receivers coach. It states that Hagans would participate in the bullying and that the university knew why Howard chose to leave the school, but did nothing about it.Howard transferred to Robert Morris University in Pennsylvania shortly after the incident and its unclear if he will ever be able to play football again, the complaint states. Howard is asking for unspecified monetary damages.---Online:More AP college football: http://collegfootball.ap.org Adam Larsson Oilers Jersey .

Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Danny Etling has figured it out in his relatively short time in the Southeastern Conference.In order to beat Alabama, the LSU quarterback said, you cant be one-dimensional.Same goes for beating LSU. The top-ranked Crimson Tide brings the nations best run defense into Saturday nights showdown with the 15th-ranked Tigers, who arent much kinder to opposing runners.In a game featuring an impressive collection of running backs led by LSUs Leonard Fournette, the quarterbacks and wide receivers are going to have to produce, too.Brandon Harris and LSU couldnt do it consistently last season against `Bama, and Fournette found scant running room against a defense that was able to load up for the run. This famously physical game wont all be about muscle.Neither team has a receiver ranked among the Top 10 in the SEC, but NFL prospects abound like LSUs Travin Dural and Malachi Dupre and Alabamas Calvin Ridley, ArDarius Stewart and tight end O.J. Howard.The quarterbacks are both making their debuts in the SEC West rivalry.Etling has had more passing success since interim coach Ed Orgeron took over in late September and brought in offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger. The Purdue transfer has had three straight 200-yard games and helped LSU set a school record for an SEC game with 634 total yards against Missouri.Its no coincidence that Tide coach Nick Saban believes the Tigers play action and vertical passing game have been more effective lately.And theyve made a lot more explosive plays, Saban said.Alabama freshman Jalen Hurts has made his share, too, both running and passing. While hes shown remarkable poise for an 18-year-old, Hurts has had some downfield misfires.Saban said worrking on the timing for the passing game was a priority during the open date before this game.dddddddddddd He figures LSUs secondary is as athletic as any Alabama has faced.Ridley said Hurts throws at least five deep balls to receivers after practice, whatever routes he wants to work on. Ridleys numbers are down from a huge freshman season, but he still has 39 catches for 477 yards and four touchdowns.I catch a lot of balls after every practice, Ridley said. I guess thats going to help us.The game certainly will feature an abundance of handoffs. Fournette and Derrius Guice are two of the SECs top runners. Alabama counters with a deep stable of tailbacks led by Damien Harris and Hurts, the teams No. 2 rusher.Neither team topped 200 passing yards in Alabamas victory last season , but the Tides Jake Coker was far more efficient than Harris. Derrick Henry ran for 210 yards on his way to the Heisman Trophy many had expected Fournette to run away with before his 31-yard performance.Etlings emergence since replacing Harris as starter and the Tigers offensive changes have generated more of a passing threat. The quarterbacks will also have to contend with several of the SECs best pass rushers in LSUs Arden Key and Alabamas Jonathan Allen and Tim Williams.We think we can get some receivers down the field, Orgeron said. But weve got to be able to protect him long enough to be able to ... get those plays down the field. Thats going to be the key to the game.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel contributed to this report---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
